So, anyway, Taco Bell is back with one of their absurd bets. This time, however, instead of waiting for a spaceship to crash into a target in the middle of the ocean, they’re just staking their tacos on stolen bases.
“Millions and millions of people will be watching the Series and hopefully tuning in to see when they are going to get their taco,” said Taco Bell spokesman Rob Poetsch.
There has been at least one stolen base in every World Series matchup since 1990. When the first base is stolen, the unit of Yum Brands Inc, will announce a Tuesday afternoon when consumers will be able to walk into the chain’s participating 5,800 outlets and ask for a free taco. Anyone who walks into a participating outlet during the give-away period would be eligible for a free taco.
Despite the promotion’s name, stealing the taco will not be required.
This won’t go well.
Don’t get me wrong, I do eat Taco Bell from time to time. It’s cheaper than buying laxatives.
I can’t believe Jose Padilla is in prison.
